Value Delivered

We provided complete plumbing and HVAC piping system installation to support a 1,100,000-square-foot, 10-story office tower and seven-story parking structure in Silicon Valley. 

To accommodate an aggressive project timeline, we performed complete BIM coordination for all plumbing and HVAC piping throughout the facility. This allowed us to maximize prefabrication opportunities, helping significantly improve efficiency. 

Ultimately, the tower was successfully completed on the tight schedule and also achieved LEED Silver Certification.
